Datasheet: Selective Wavelength Photodiodes With 660nm Peak Wavelength Response

Source: Opto Diode, An ITW Company

Opto Diode Corporation announces the third in the series of new selective wavelength photodiodes, the ODD-660W. The new device operates from 550nm to 720nm with peak response at 660nm and features a spectral bandwidth of 80nm. The hermetically-sealed photodiode offers extremely low dark current without the need for optical filters. Applications for the new photodetector include fluorescence detection, color sensors, daylight sensors, light barriers, and medical diagnostics.

The standard TO-46 can permits easy installation into existing or new systems. Storage and operating parameters are from -30 degrees C to 85 degrees C; lead soldering temperature of up to 260 degrees C.

The ODD 660W is shipping now in OEM quantities and affordably priced at $ 6.50 per piece in 100-unit lots.
